    I have installed several codecs so that I can play some downloaded Divx movies. Althought I have installed Mpeg 4, angel codec, Hbo and others, some movies still won't play. I get sound using media player, but no pic.
    Any Ideas???
    Thanks..............................Mike

    if you're using xp, the media player 8 doesn't play certain divx. You gotta use the old version of media player which is packaged with win xp. Just run mplayer2.exe and you'll be able to play the divx.

    Oggdec

    Certain groups encode their films with the Oggdec codec such as the file The.Others.DVDRip.DivX-ViTE.avi etc.

    Any idea where to download oggdec? I've searched around, but, as of yet, to no avail...

    Thanks in advance.
